Good pizza is surprisingly easy to make, and without the grease common to many chain pizza restaurants, it's a treat you can feel good about indulging in.
CALABRIAN CAPRESE PIZZA
1/2 recipe Black Pepper Pizza Dough or store bought pizza dough
1 tablespoon D’Olivo Spicy Calabrian Pesto Olive Oil
8 oz fresh mozzarella sliced
2 large ripe tomatoes sliced
salt and black pepper to taste
Handful fresh basil, chopped
D’Olivo Black Mission Fig Balsamic, for drizzling
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. If using refrigerated pizza dough, remove dough from refrigerator and allow dough to come to room temperature while oven preheats.
Place pizza dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a circle. Make a thicker crust along edges of pizza. Brush D’Olivo Spicy Calabrian Pesto Oil evenly over the dough. Arrange mozzarella slices evenly over dough and top with sliced tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle basil over pizza. Place in preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until crust is browned and cheese is bubbly.
Remove pizza from oven and drizzle with D’Olivo Fig Balsamic. Cut into slices and serve warm.
